Our +300/500 RYT program runs in conjunction with an RYT 200 training at our studio location (weekday or weekend) and includes additional group participation (+300/500 RYT Specific) once a month. You have up to 1 full year to complete all program requirements.
1) Successful Completion of a 200 RYT Teacher Training Course (must include a copy your certificate with registration application)
2) Must Be Actively teaching at the 200 RYT Level for a least 1 year since becoming certified as a 200 RYT
Our +300/500 Hour Teacher Training Program is offered as an advanced study course, with a deeper set of skills and insights to bring into your teaching practice, and essential to your ongoing development as a professional yoga teacher. The "advanced" quality of the +300/500 hour training is not so-called advanced asanas, but rather we focus on developing an advanced understanding of how to effectively teach asasa, pranayama and meditation practices to all levels and conditions of students. This program asks for your full commitment to being on the path of the teacher, starting with staying in your own personal practice and teaching in an active way. Once completed, you will be eligible to apply to the Yoga Alliance at the RYT 500 level, and could be given an opportunity to Co-Lead a future RYT 200 Teacher Training Program under our accredited curriculum and with continued guidance and support, should this be something we consider in your personal program layout: If so, this is where you'll get to fill in the blanks.... as we encourage you to create your own signature components to the program, reflective of your specific philosophy and teaching style.
All of your program training sessions are conducted in both small group and/or large group settings at our studio location with our 200 RYT Trainees, and includes 1 additional session per month (typically web-based) that is scheduled as per availability with just fellow +300/500 training classmates. Our program allows you some flexibility to go at your own pace with a full year to complete the program (including any make-up sessions or temporary training delays). All training sessions are run in accordance to and in conjunction with an on-going RYT 200 program - Weekdays or Weekend (please see dates on our 200 RYT page).
We offer enrollment into our teacher training program twice a year - Spring/Summer & Winter/Fall, and require a copy of your 200 hour certificate of completion be attached with your registration application. You will not be accepted without all required and/or completed forms. Your completed application, attachments and deposit or payment in full will secure your spot.
